Modest dresses for women are quite difficult to find sometimes. It’s not just the dresses we’re having trouble finding, it is also a lot of other items. What am I to do if I want a cute knee skirt or a trendy top? Chances are you have experienced this problem along with every other woman who is looking for modesty in her wardrobe.
However, while modest dresses for women are expensive, you just have to know where to look. That’s the whole point of this article today. I want to show you some neat little hacks that can make an old outfit or dress look brand new, how to shop for items that are below your budget, and what to do when you just have to have something on the rack. Here’s three ideas that won’t break the bank and will still allow for style and modesty in your closet.
#1 – Use What You Have
Just the other day I ran across some items I forgot I even had. It’s always a nice surprise to find that one piece of clothing hiding in the back of your closet isn’t it? The point is, don’t forget what you have already. There is a culmination of different items you have purchased over time that will be handy to each other. Almost like a symbiotic relationship which was purchased at different times.
Going through your closet periodically can uncover these hidden gems and liven up an old outfit like you always knew it could be. Whether it’s a blue scarf, a denim jacket, or that top you never had anything to wear with, these forgotten items can be goldmines to past purchases.
Go ahead, I’ll wait…check your closet. I will almost guarantee you there’s something there that you’ve forgotten about.
#2 – Shop Thrift Stores
If you are on a tight budget, but are still in the market for modest dresses, going to your local thrift store is a great way to capitalize on saving money.
The only downside to this idea is it may take quite a while to search for what you’re looking for. Some stores aren’t that acquainted with organization by size and/or style. However, if you’re willing to spend a little time to hunt for the perfect outfit, it can sometimes pay off.
One of the things about shopping in thrift stores is you have to have perfect timing it seems. Learn when they receive shipments or drop offs and start visiting the store during those times. It allows you to be the first to see the items they have and go to the front of the line.
Another great way to create a better budget is to understand your local thrift store savings ideas. Some stores will offer color code sales on modest dresses for women on specific days, others will even allow you a percentage off when you donate your old clothes, etc. It helps to understand the operating procedures of these stores.
#3 – Shop The Clearance Items
More than likely, every clothing store you go to will have a clearance rack. Usually at one end of the store or another, learn where these clearance racks are. You can also talk to the store clerks to see when they will be putting more clothing on clearance so you can update your schedule then.
Shopping clearance is something I am very proactive at doing. My husband loves to shop the thrift stores. We all have our special quirks to save money on modest apparel. But when it comes to modest dresses for women, you can’t be too careful. You have to pull out all the stops.
For example, E&O Apparel also has a lot of items on sale every day. Take a look at the items we have available right now below.
